The Mueller Investigation Bears No Russian Fruit

The Mueller investigation on Russian interference in America's election at some point soon will be over. Hopefully this lengthy and methodical investigation will produce good proof of what may have occurred or what did not occur in America's 2016 presidential election. So far after a year of digging, there is nothing to show that the Trump campaign broke any campaign laws. This is not to say that the something could be uncovered in the future. However, what is very clear this investigation has uncovered that there were several people who worked on President Trump's campaign that were indited for crimes unrelated to the campaign. It's clear that Mueller whet a drift from what he was hired to do, and astray of the mandate of the investigation.

The Mueller Russian Investigation Mandate Was Well Docuented

On May 17th 2017 deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, appointed former F.B.I. Director Robert S. Mueller III as the special counsel to head and oversee the investigation into Russian tampering in the 2016 presidential elections. The mandate for the Russian interference into our election was clearly documented, and gave clear instructions on what the Mueller was to investigate. The official Order # 3915 - 2017 gives clear proof of what the mandate ordered.

So far it seems Mueller hasn't over reached his authority. The indictments that have resulted in the investigation falls under his mandate.

The First Indictment - Paul Manafort and Rick Gates

The special counsel’s office has brought forth their first indictment in the Russian probe. After nine months of investigation Robert Mueller, has obtained an indictment from a federal grand jury. Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign manager, and his business associate Rick Gates were indited on 12 counts in connection with Robert Mueller's probe into Russia's meddling in the 2016 U.S. election. The charges include conspiracy against the United States, conspiracy to launder money, unregistered agent of a foreign principal, false and misleading Foreign Agent Registration (FARA) statements, false statements and seven counts of failure to file reports of foreign banks and financial accounts. "Manafort has since plead" not guilty to all charges.

Soon To Follow The Flynn Indictment

The fact is there has been two indictments out of the Mueller investigation. Michael Flynn, President Trump's former national security adviser was indited with one count of making false statements to the FBI.

According to court documents, Michael Flynn was charged with one count of "willfully and knowingly" making false statements to the FBI. Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his talks with a Russian ambassador. Flynn resigned as Trump’s national security adviser in February 2017 over revelations that he lied to Vice President Mike Pence on his communications with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak. The subject of the conversation is unknown except for unsecured leaks. I deal in fact, so find it distasteful to quote rumor. I would assume at some point the continence of the conversation that Flynn had with Kislyak will become public. Flynn accepted a plea deal, and has agreed to cooperate with the FBI. Many are speculating that Flynn has information that will lead to proving that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election. This is speculation.

So Far There Is Nothing That Shows Any Collusion Or Obstruction .... Now What?

The evidence thus far shows no collision or obstruction of justice. The evidence bares no Russian fruit. Yes there has been two indictments. However, neither is relevant to the Russian Meddling in our election. Yes, there are many theories as well as unsubstantiated faceless leaks trying to connect the dots. But, facts will ultimately be the deciding factor that will prove if Russia sought to work with the Trump campaign to skew our 2016 election. All the speculation will fly out the window with truth. The truth could substantiate that there was collusion. It might also prove there was none.

Summing It All Up

At no time in history has the country been so divide politically. There is a clear line in the sand, a left and a right. The Russian investigation has deepened the divide, and elicited conspiracy hysteria like no other problem America has faced.

So, what will occur when it's all over? After Mueller gives his findings, and we have a clear picture of what occurred? When it's time to move on, and a clear winner has been assigned by Mueller's final findings. We can all be assure there will in the end be a winner. With all the Bragging rights that comes with being a winner. Will the divide be mended or will it become deeper? Will one side be it right or left come to the realization that it is time to stop the battle of words? At least on this subject.

When All The Dust Has Settled

What if "there is no there there"? Will you be willing to accept the Mueller findings?

      bradmasterOCcal - I wrote this article to elicit a response. Asking the question. "What if there was no collusion or obstruction? I had hoped that the question would get people thinking about the fact there will be an end to the Mueller investigation. A final report, did Russia interfere with the election, and did anyone on the Trump campaign break the law in regard to the election. It's clear there has been two indictments, both unrelated to the outcome of the election. I pointed out Mueller's mandate, the simple fact that it was well defined to investigating certain accepts of the campaign. The country is very divided. Some feeling that the Trump campaign worked with Russians,. The other half feeling the investigation is a "witch hunt." Let's face it there will be a losing side. I am very curious on how the losing side will react. Note that not many have taken my polls. I guess it clearly answers my question. It appears the divide will deepen, it appears some will continue to signor the truth.

      I will say that the investigations that have produced zero evidence after a year, and now lead by Mueller who has many conflicts of interest should have been closed a long time ago.

      In fact, I have stated that the Hillary Clinton and democrats created their BBT (big bang theory) on the basis of the bogus Russian Dossier. Hillary Clinton and the DNC paid $12 million for this Trump opposition paper.

      The senator McCain brings it to the FBI who then get FISA warrants to spy on Trump and his team.

      How can you not blame the FBI when they didn't even verify the document but used it to spy on Trump.

      To answer your article. Even if there was no problem and no investigation. The left would keep resisting Trump.

      My article asks the question. What will we do when it's all over?" First, you have a right to your opinion. However, it appears you did not read my article. I expressed facts only. I did not embellish or show bias. I don't in any fashion predict an outcome to the Mueller investigation. It's clear that no one as of yet has privileged to any facts other than the two indictments that have been handed down. Both the Manafort , and the Flynn indictments are not connected connected to President Trump. Manafort has been charged with money laundering and tax crimes. Flynn charged with lying to the FBI. No more no less. " Then you wonder why an investigation is going on." I in no respect questioned the need for the investigation. I have no way of knowing if the situation will get "uglier" , and in no respect insulted the FBI in my article. Not sure why you find it your place to insult me? I am not a "dreamer" I am a realist, and as I stated in my article - I will wait until Mueller gives his final report. I will not predict or argue the outcome. I find it a waste of time and energy. I ask you, what will be your reaction when it' all over? Please take my polls.

      You our dreaming, why would you commit obstruction of Justice for nothing. Why are numerous people indicted. Why did these people lie countless times? Then you wonder why an investigation is going on. Why are they trying so hard to stop this from continuing? The truth is already ugly and it will get even worst. The FBI is loyal to one thing at the end of the day and that loyalty is to the FBI. Keep dreaming.
